Jeen Ices the Competition with Jeesperse CPW

April 7, 2011

Cold process waxes reduce costs, save time and improve carbon footprint.

Jeen International continues to roll out its line of cold process waxes under the Jeesperse CPW banner. The Jeesperse CPW series of products are wax/gellant optimized powders that, when introduced into room temperature water with simple agitation, form stable emulsions that impart exceptional suspension, emulsification and stability to creams and lotions. Various natural waxes (sunflower, beeswax, carnauba) and synthetic waxes (polyethylene, paraffin, etc) with medium to high melt points can be incorporated using the Jeesperse CPW technology.

Moreover, this series offers sustainable carbon footprint reduction by allowing single kettle production by cold process, according to Jeen International. If you don’t heat the emulsion, you don’t need to cool it. Furthermore, water controls the temperature of a mixing vessel; but if you don’t have to pump water in and out of a vessel, you can reduce water consumption.

Manufacturing times can be shortened as well. Jeesperse CPW can be added to cold aqueous phase at 5-10%. This will swell quickly creating a cream base. Once the base is formed, the oil phase can be added. This oil phase can include esters, silicones, oils, emulsifiers, etc. Jeesperse CPW can be used at lower levels to increase viscosities and change the aesthetics of an existing emulsion.

According to Jeen, incorporating Jeesperse CPW into personal care formualtions reduces energy use, provides greater efficiency, is easy to use and imparts great new textures to cosmetic formulations.
